    Historic old church, a Shimla landmark
    The square church tower of Christ Church, painted a pale creamy yellow, is one of the Shimla skyline’s most prominent highlights. The church is one of North India’s oldest churches, its cornerstone having been laid in 1844, and the church consecrated in January 1857. Today, Christ Church is part of the Church of North India’s Diocese of Amritsar, and regular services in English and Hindi are held every Sunday. Visitors, however, are allowed into the church, though (of course) you are expected to maintain decorum. Photography is allowed (no videography), but only till before the pews—there are signs to this effect. Also, visitors can enter only up to the last two pews, so it’s not possible to walk along the sides (which have some beautiful stained-glass windows) or up to the altar (also good stained-glass at the back). The walls are lined with many plaques of polished brass, commemorating various people, both British and Indian, who lived and/or died in Shimla and around.

    Historic & interesting church
    This church is an interesting Victorian space. The plaques lining the walls are memorials to those lost in India during the British Raj era and are fascinating. Some nice stained glass too. This is a good spot to relax and reflect just yards from the hubbub of town.

While one could only view it from a distance, Christ Church is an integral part of the architectural landscape at The Mall in Shimla.

A Historic Building made British when they were in Shimla as like many other old buildings made by them in Himachal.

It is located just on Mall Road Shimla.

1st point at Mall road is this heritage, Church. Entry inside church generally allowed but sometimes they restrict visitor inside it. You can take picture outside Church.  It is oldest landmark at Shimla and beautiful Church in India.
